2018 – CHW
Smoke from the huge bonfire in Dry Walls drifts down the valley and over the pond. We are clear felling an area to replant.
Completing the annual tree survey in Burncoose Garden.
A big limb has cracked off an oak opposite the mist houses. A branch had been pruned out high up years ago and water had seeped into the next branch down. Not too much damage but it frightened the house visitors!
The great joy of gardening is to inspect recent new planting and see how well plants are doing.
2015 – CHW
In the rockery are two more dwarf rhododendrons enjoying a second autumn flowering.
Rhododendron ‘Yaku Fairy’ has quite a good show but Rhododendron russatum has just a couple of flowers.
